Balsamic Glazed Pork Loin

6 4 oz. pork loin chops
1/3 cup balsamic vinegar
3 cloves garlic, minced
1 teaspoon thyme
salt and pepper
1 tablespoon brown sugar

In a small pan heat vinegar then add brown sugar, garlic, thyme and a little salt and pepper and cook for a few minutes until the sauce reduces slightly.  Set aside.
salt and pepper the pork, add 1 tablespoon of oil to hot saute pan.  Cook pork chops until browned on both sides and almost cooked through, add the sauce and cook pork in sauce for a few minutes until glazed and the pork is done to your liking.  we like ours medium well, not a follower of the cook pork until leather mind set.

Asparagus and Morel Tart

Store puff pastry brushed with egg and cream and topped with home grown asparagus, morels, and Parmesan cheese.  This was good but the other one I made like this but with caramelized onion was better.  Yum.

A new bathroom!

There is only one way to explain the bathroom before, brown, Brown, BROWN.  I was not a fan.

Hubby and I got to work to make the bathroom bright, all I could think was I wanted a bright bathroom, the opposite of what we had before!  Painted the brown ceiling white, the brown walls gray, replace the brown sink and toilet to white, and had a company come and for $265 had the ugly brown bathtub refinished in white.  I am so happy with my new bright bathroom.  however, we did not go to the expense of replacing the brown tile.
